Stage 2 of our pedestrian safety works are underway in Atherton Road; sorry for the disruptions

We’re creating a raised island for the entire intersection with three pedestrian crossings, one on each side

This is part of Councils prioritisation of pedestrian movement at our activity centres and will also make it much safer for children on their way to school

Happy National Tree Day!

We haven’t been able to plant trees for a number of years due to COVID. Today, Friends of Scotchmans Creek and Valley Reserve organised for 8,800 trees to be planted in just over two hours; amazing!

Thanks to more than 200 volunteers for turning up to brave the cold weather at Fairway Reserve

Terrific evening at the @monashbusinessawards Gala event. COVID has been difficult for all of us, but especially for our local business community

Monash has the largest employment outside the CBD, but with so many people working from home now, we may have taken the mantle

Congratulations to @whistledesign for taking out business of the year and @tfchoice for winning the rising star award

Public service announcement: Pressing the hazard light button in your car does not mean road rules do not apply to you

Turning on your hazards does not mean you can suddenly park illegally to grab a quick takeaway coffee, pull over to use your phone, or wait to pick someone up!

Red parking signs are almost always in place for safety reasons; that’s why they’re red. We all have a role to play in keeping each other safe!

Did you know that the court in which Neighbours was filmed sits 500 metres outside of Monash?

The final episode airs tonight - the 8,903rd time the show has been on our screens

Growing up, most people liked Neighbours or Home and Away; it was akin to the Holden vs Ford rivalry. I was a Home and Away fan, but my Grandparents loved Neighbours

The show has been a big part of Australian culture since it first aired on March 18, 1985 and there have been a myriad of stars who launched their careers on set. It’s a sad day for Australian television and, for me, a stark reminder of how old I am 😢

Yet another over development that Council rejected has been overturned by VCAT. Makes you wonder why applications aren’t just made directly to VCAT in the first place.

Sadly, all too common.

An honour to join @waverleyhc for their inaugural Indigenous Round to celebrate NAIDOC week. Thanks to Uncle Bill Nicholson for a fabulous welcome to country smoking ceremony. Our sporting clubs are leading the way in helping to drive societal change in so many areas, including gender equity & reconciliation

Prioritising pedestrians at our activity centres is a key part of our Council plan and we did a lot of work around Atkinson & Burlington Streets pre-COVID

Today, the first crossing of our next round of safety works opened at Drummond Street at Atherton Road. This intersection is often used by children and parents with prams. Works start shortly on three more crossings at Palmerston Grove, with refuge islands to come around the station shortly after!

It’s time to switch ♻️ Green bins will begin being collected weekly from August. Red bins will also switch to a fortnightly collection, on the alternate week to yellow bins. This change allows us to continue collecting food weekly – just from a different bin – and reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.

If you have council bins allocated to your individual address this change applies to you.

👉 If you live in Area A, your last weekly red bin collection will fall between 25 to 29 July. Your green bin will be collected every week starting from 1 August 2022.

👉 If you live in Area B, your last weekly red bin collection will fall between 1 to 5 August. Your green bin will be collected every week starting from 8 August 2022. 

If you live in an apartment building, or share bins with other properties, your red bin will continue to be collected weekly. We will work with property owners and body corporate to look at ways we can further support your waste needs before we consider changing your landfill waste to a fortnightly collection.

Absolutely brilliant evening last night at Shrek, The Musical, produced by @mazenodcollege and @avila_college 

In my younger years at @careygrammar and @monash_uni, I was heavily involved in theatrical productions acting and running lighting desks. Nothing beats the pure energy and passion displayed in amateur productions

Well done to all involved on a simply sensational performance 🙌

Awesome afternoon at the last of our Winter Concerts yesterday. @cosmiccatsentertainment were originally lined up for a gig last year, but COVID lockdowns put paid to that.

Brilliant up and coming group who were a lot of fun and very engaging with the audience. It’s my life mission to get Zoe to actually smile in a photo 🙄

Awesome afternoon at Encore Theatre Company’s production of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. They often run short one hour plays for children during the school holidays and tickets are only $10. Always a lot of fun - and I’ve even learnt a way to get more time (I need it) 🤣

Well done to all on another successful production!

Another local pop quiz, this one’s a little harder. Where is this?

(Hint: it’s in Oakleigh - answer revealed Friday)

🛝 When I was first running for Council, Notting Hill wasn’t getting much love. Over the past four years we’ve built a brand new park in Samada Street, creating walking and cycling tracks and just completed the newly rebuilt playground at the @nottinghillnh which includes sensory elements for young children

Extremely proud to join Cr Josh Fergeus in opening this next chapter of improvements in the area. Pop down and check it out, and grab a delicious coffee next door from Anne at @inchmealcafe 😋

Big thanks to Minister @lilydambrosiomp and @steve_dimopoulos for their support & financial contribution under the Suburban Parks Program
